Plan Ahead

Bussell, Jerri Lynn


Jerri Lynn passed away Friday, December 3rd at only 47 years old.

Mother of an infant son Jade Forest, and survived by 2 daughters Adonijah Rain Bussell and Aviel Rose Bussell, as well as her mother Carleen Starr Norman. Jerri was also an adopted mom and aunt to many other kiddos whom she loved dearly. She always cherished time with her father, Jerry Leo Roberts, whether riding with him in rodeos or simply eating lunch on his back porch. She was a bold women who never left a word unspoken and who touched the hearts of many. Animals flocked to her, no matter how small or scaley, and she definitely had an affinity for making any living thing feel loved. She not only was moved by nature but she moved nature in return through horticulture and gardening and could save any plant no matter how far gone. Ms.Jerri was a teacher to hundreds of students throughout her career and was passionate about education and helping others to cultivate and appreciate the world we live in. She was born in Oak Cliff near her grandmother’s in south Dallas where she would grow up a country girl in the big city. She was an artist, and a lover of history and the sciences. She loved learning and attended schools in Dallas, Irving, and Mesquite. She continued her education whenever possible including biblical studies at CFNI. Jerri was a strong believer in a loving and merciful creator. She loved others deeply, passionately, and believed each individual had a part in making the world better. She made this world immeasurably brighter and she will be missed.

One Thought on Bussell, Jerri Lynn
    28 Dec 2021

    I knew Jerri for a short time but we always checked in with one another after our circle of friends widened and dissipated.
    She was a bright light in this world. Always welcoming, always with love.
    Her smile was so welcoming and infectious.

    My sincere condolences to her children and mother. Fly with the wind, shine with the sun. May she cross into the next world with ease and strength

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
